Theory of Machines and Mechanisms

Fourth Edition

John Uicker, Gordon Pennock, and Joseph Shigley

  • Offers balanced coverage of all topics by both graphic and analytic methods
  • Covers all major analytic approaches
  • Includes the method of kinematic coefficients-which clearly separates kinematic (geometric) effects from those depending on operating speed or other dynamic effects-and also integrates the coverage of linkages, cams, and geared systems
  • Provides high-accuracy graphical solutions to exercises, by use of CAD software

New to this Edition:

  • Includes more worked examples throughout, and many new and updated end-of-chapter homework problems
  • Coverage of helical gears, bevel gears, worms, and worm gears is now integrated into a single chapter
  • Material on planar and spatial dynamic force analysis is now integrateded into a single chapter
  • A completely new chapter has been added on multi-degree-of-freedom planar linkage analysis
  • The chapter on kinematic synthesis has been markedly expanded, and now includes three and four accuracy position graphical methods
  • The chapter on static force analysis has been expanded to included coverage of buckling of axially-loaded two-force members under compression
